Very clean, with friendly staff. About a 10-15 minute walk from center which was perfect for us. Basic facilities, but we got exactly what we paid for and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Also offers very great value bike rental. Bonus!

It is definitely a nice play to stay for the money, close to the center (5 minutes by bike), and the staff was really nice

I can not bare smoke smelling in the room. No bathroom in the room but collective, and a very old bulduing with a few renovation. The bred for breakfast was not available at 7:30 when I had to go. Hopefully, the staff was sympathetic! I just think the price was too high for such a few comfort.
